Advanced Placement Environmental Science
Monterey Institute of Technology and Education
Environmental Sciences is an interdisiplinary field involving the study of our world, our culture, and the relationship of humans and the planet. It includes topics such as the Biosphere, Plate Tectonics, Global Warming, Conventional and Alternative Energy, Environmental Ethics, and many more. They may be taken together as a complete course, giving students a broad undestanding of the planet and our relationship to it, or lessons may be explored individually to learn about specific topics in the field of Environmental Sciences.
Units are based on a course using various textbooks. While these textbooks should not be necessary to explore this material, they may be thought of as supplemental material. Readings from these textbooks are listed as part of each Unit.
